I was in Aripeka before my third sip of coffee this morning. I had walked into the kitchen to pour my first cup of coffee and couldn’t help but notice that the clouds out back had broken up, promising a pretty sunrise. I think I was standing on the bridge with my to-go cup about 15 minutes later. I like this new bridge, I like the buildings that give a little more interest to the sunrise shots. And the reverse is a nice view too. And an playful otter swimming around, but not posing for photos.As the sunrise was winding down I headed over to the Hammond Creek bridge just a minute up the road. I suspected/hoped that this heron was One-Foot Fred, but he was holding his left leg up out of sight. Once I started moving around him to get him in my shot I was convinced that’s who it was because he ignored me. But as I drove away he put his leg back down so I could see the missing foot. Yes, Fred is alive and well.
